Myeloma Advocacy

Recently I was invited to join some of the leading myeloma advocates in a discussion of the concerns and unmet needs of myeloma patients. I was absolutely honored and humbled this week to join 8 fellow patients and 2 caregivers. Each of the participants has a powerful voice and all are passionate and so so smart. At times I was scratching my head, wondering why I was there.

I could go on and on. But I'll leave you with this unofficial photo of the group. I'm in the back on the right, partly covered by shadows.
